28m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A superb girdle, the best of several on the cliff.
1) 5b, 12m. From Sceptic swing along the break to Nectar. Continue to an awkward hanging-stance on Orang-outang.
2) 5c, 16m. Continue swinging to an awkward move up a diagonal overlap to the break. Finish up the hard roof crack. © Rockfax

FA. Steve Bancroft, John Allen 1975.

βeta: Definitely fair at E3 - not a particularly hard one, but condierably harder than Orangutang. Personally I'd recommend The Messner Link-up. It's like the "Fern Hill of Stanage!" No harder than 5c

βeta: Hmmm. Very hard for E2 in my opinion, climbed around same time as Soyuz, the Asp, Black Hawk Bastion and other E2/3's in Yorks. Was harder than all of them!
